Description

Description

In both developed and developing countries, people increasingly learn in different (physical and social) settings with less effort than 50 years ago. They easily move from one "place" to another and create their own learning "spaces", e.g. by using mobile devices and cloud technology to access educational resources, connect with others, or create content. Learners' mobility and control over what, when, where and how they want to learn is still increasing every day, allowing them to choose from a wide variety of formal (e.g. schools, universities) as well as non-formal (e.g. museums, "on the job", MOOCs) learning experiences. Seamless Learning looks at the 'gaps' that currently exist between these varied learning settings and how learning across can be fostered by making transitions as smooth as possible with innovative technology and pedagogy, in order to make learning more meaningful, transferable, effective, continuous and fun for learners. This course aims to provide the required knowledge and skills to effectively design seamless and mobile learning experiences, with a focus on the development sector.
